The Space

Feel the Manhattan-style buzz and soak up the charm of side walk cafes in this sleek, chic, streamlined apartment. It's also super-sized (65sqm), perfect for a couple eager to take a weekend or semi-long break in Sydney.


* Sydney's coolest pubs, intimate bars are at your fingertips, but with a full-width balcony you can even decide to bring your own bottle of wine or beer up and enjoy Sydney's long summers (we're in a quiet street, so sleeping won't be a problem)
* Fluid interiors, discrete bedroom zone with built-ins, gallery kitchen to cook at home (but why would you with so many amazing restaurants around?)
* Super fast wi-fi, TV, vintage digital radio, shampoo, hair dryer, soaps, fresh high quality bed linen and towel are provided
* You will also find plenty of Sydney guides on the table for you to discover what locals love (and some hidden gems): theatres, restaurants, swimming pools, bike rentals, walks, tours...

What a find! High on contemporary style this apartment is at the epicenter of Surry Hills village and is the ultimate place to stay for a (long) weekend in Sydney...

Getting around

The flat is directly across the road from Central Station (trains) so can easily be reached from the airport. From there you can pretty much get anywhere in Sydney, including the stunning beaches!
It's also a short walk - or a very pleasant ride on a bicycle - from the CBD (financial district) and Chinatown, Paddington, Darlinghurst, Potts Point...

  • I had a great time staying at Paola and Arie's apartment. The location is perfect, right in the heart of Surry Hills and all of it's cafés, bars and restaurants. The apartment itself was nice and airy, with plenty of sunlight and a perfect size for a weekend escape. Paola and Arie were lovely, always happy to communicate and helpful during my stay. I couldn't recommend them any higher as hosts. Thank you!

  • We had a lovely stay in Paola and Arie's apartment. It's surrounded by great cafes and restaurants and a short walk to the local supermarket. Central Station is very close by which makes it a perfect base for travelling around Sydney. We had beautiful weather during our stay so it was really nice to be able to enjoy a coffee on the balcony in the mornings. Although Surry Hills is a busy area, the heavy glass sliding doors to the balcony really blocked the noise at night - even our six-month-old slept well. Although we didn't meet with Paola and Arie, they were very welcoming and easy to deal with.

  • While I didn't get to meet Paola and Arie, it was a pleasure staying in their apartment. An early check in and a late check out was no problem at all. The apartment is in a fantastic location. It's close to lots of brilliant cafes and restaurants (Movida is just a couple of doors down, and Crown St is a short walk away), and Central Station for easy access around the city.

  • We found Paola and Arie's apartment to be exactly as advertised - a great-looking contemporary apartment, very clean, and in an excellent location. The layout and style of the apartment is very pleasing, and there is plenty of space! The pictures describe the apartment very well. Super fast wifi, too!

    The central location allowed us to walk everywhere, and there are some *excellent* little restaurants in the local area! (Arie kindly left us a note with some nice recommendations, too!) There is some noise that comes along with this during busy hours if you keep the apartment's glass doors open, but it really didn't bother us in the slightest.

    We found we had to keep the apartment's screen/mesh doors shut because there were alot of mosquitos about (we unluckily came to Sydney on a rainy/overcast weekend), but you barely notice they're shut because they still let in plenty of light and air, and you can still feel connected to the greenery outside as well!

    Above all, Arie was nice, super responsive and easy to communicate with, which certainly made our first Airbnb experience a positive one! Excellent hosts!

  • Paola & Arie's apartment is perfectly located in between Central Station and trendy-Surry Hills.

    Paola and Arie were very easy to reach and gave us great recommendations.

    The apartment is very clean and well decorated.
    Although technically a studio, there is plenty of space! The apartment's layout is perfect and very practical.
    The apartment is also fully equipped.

    Located on the second floor the apartment still benefits from natural light and a lot of air/wind.
    The only negative point would be that, because it is located on the second floor, you can hear everything happening in the street (coffee breaks and garbage trucks) and it can be a bit loud in the morning.

    I would definitely stay here again if i ever went back to Sydney.

  • Paola's place was everything we wanted. Interacting was quick and efficient and for the price I thought it was great value for money. Definitely check this place out if your looking for somewhere to stay in Sydney.

    Great people to interact with, definitely recommend them

  • Great flat in a great location! Clean, comfortable and convenient. Surry Hills is one of the best areas of Sydney and Paola and Arie's flat is right in the centre of it as well as being walking distance to CBD. The check in process was easy and Paola was great at giving local tips. Look forward to coming back!

  • Paola and Arie's Sydney flat is such a fantastic location! We walked everywhere and managed to get so much out of our time in Sydney during the very busy New Year period. They even gave us great tips for places to eat/drink nearby (in the very cool Surry Hills area) and left loads of helpful guides in the apartment for sightseeing. I'd highly recommend their place as a base in Australia and it's the perfect place to see Sydney as the locals do.

  • Paola & Arie were great hosts. After some quick questions about the purpose of the stay, booking was made quick and easy. They were always quick to respond to any questions and were willing (although it turned out to not be necessary) to arrange an early bag drop off as well.
    The location is fantastic, a 5 minute walk from Central station which couldn't be more convenient for the train to the airport or to just about any location you could want in Sydney. There's convenience stores/pubs/cafes all around, and you're a short walk from Crown and Bourke St as well.
    Definitely recommended.

We're Paola and Arie, a couple of young professionals living in a contemporary apartment in one of Sydney's coolest neighbourhoods: Surry Hills (yet close to the Central Station & Central Business District). We work & live in the area, so can tell you all about the cool places to hang out (please have your notebook ready, there are many). Living in one of Sydney's trendiest areas doesn't mean you'll have to compromise on transport with the Central Station only a few blocks away and Sydney's Central Business District around the corner (if it's business & pleasure :) Surry Hills is very walkable but with the many cycleways streaking through Surry Hills' roads thanks to local investment you're forgiven if you prefer moving around on 2 wheels (hipsters would approve). The Dutch side of the couple - not exactly a hipster even he tried - thinks cycling in Surry Hills is great, while the Italian side of the couple prefers to spend her time at Gelato Messina (voted best gelato in Australia by Good Food Guide - check it out yourself or do a search on your preferred search engine). Apart from that we love going away for a weekend or a long holiday around the world. We believe travelling is all about diving into local culture and exploring things off-the-beaten-track. While we live close to many interesting and popular areas of Sydney there are many quirky local food markets (and a farmers market) and superb local restaurants just around the corner. Come and explore our very own Surry Hills and stay in our contemporary apartment to enjoy the very best of Sydney.
